1699 pp + xlvii+ xxxi. Reprint of the 1957 edition, in 2 volumes. 330 text illustrations, 32 half-tone plates. General and systematic index. Vol. I consists of Glaciology (Land and Sea ice) and Glacial Geology; glacial erosion and depositions; periglacial processes. Volume II is the Quaternary Era plus a bibliography of over 1,900 entries with the two indices. An important feature of the book is the inclusion, due to the use of special contractions for the titles of periodicals, of hundreds of references at the end of each chapter. Prof. Charlesworth presents many sides of contentious issues, respectfully, yet always indicating his own opinion. A definitive work. Paper wraps have some scuffing and darkening at the spines, a few minor chips/tears at the edges. Interiors of both books clean and tight. A very nice set.; Large 8vo
